Guys, Guys, does anyone use spice? Bottom line is, it doesn't matter how you do it, as long as it gets done. I don't par-boil, but it works either way. Gotta use cast iron, and I think bacon grease or at least lard is best, but does anyone but me put peppers in? Slice up a serrano or two along with onions, bell peppers, a clove or two of garlic, and you got a meal.
